Trellis Needs Your Help!

Trellis Restaurant has been considered one of Menlo Park’s hidden gems since we opened in 2001. Our hopes for a successful two decade celebration seemed bright until the COVID-19 epidemic ravaged small businesses throughout our country, and the resulting forced closures on indoor dining have not made the situation any easier for family owned restaurants like Trellis. 

We know times are tough; we are experiencing this dilemma side by side with our community, so we have done our best to help. We have always made our customer’s happiness a fundamental priority in our service, and as a result we adapted our service to include free delivery on all orders so that you are able to enjoy our fresh and authentic Italian food from the comfort and safety of your own homes. 

Additionally, we have continued to keep all our staff on payroll despite the limited help that has been given to small businesses, and we take pride in the fact that we have been able to keep our bills paid and our staff employed up until this point.

However, as we continue to adapt to these unprecedented circumstances, we find ourselves in a position where we have to step out of our comfort zone and ask for the help of our valuable and loyal customers. Trellis is now facing severe financial difficulties. We are asking for your aid in the form of donations or the purchase of gift cards so that Trellis Restaurant can continue to serve our community once we persevere through the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Once again, we thank you for any support and we look forward to serving you in the future.
